Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: The Ives Touch, Part II

Once again LIA you have delivered such an information dense,interestingly presented piece on a very difficult subject to capture,and then take it another step and tie it into the music of the GD.It will take me at least one more reading to cull some of the major points brought forth,but it was just so packed with interesting stuff.Over the last few weeks I have been listening to some composers suggested by bkidwll,Lygeti,Boulez,Shoenberg and I stumbled across Elliot Carter,Varese and Charles Ives.I listenened to a performance of the 4th symphony by Michael Tilson Thomas and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and Chorus on youtube.There is just so much going on it is almost overwhelming,I sat back and said to myself it would take an awful lot of dedicated listening to just get a toehold on what is happening with this guy,and now you put out this flood of info making it even more appealing.Damn you LIA,I have my hands full just trying to figure out this GD stuff,and you and your buddy bkidwell have to dangle the classical carrot.
